Sony's Playstation E3 2011 press event is getting ready to begin. We will be here live blogging it from the LA Memorial Sports Arena complex ... at least under our battery runs out. :)
The show begins with a trailer of various Playstation 3 and NGP games including Uncharted 3, Twisted Metal and others.
Sony Playstation America CEO Jack Tretton apologize to Playstation fans about the recent month long downtime of the Playstation Network. He told the audience that since the network was restored the service has about 90 percent of the traffic it had before the shutdown. He also announced that Netflix gets more traffic from Playstation 3 than from any other source. Another movie download service, CinemaNow, will soon join the Playstation Network.
The rumors are true. We will be getting some hands-on time with Playstation games directly after the press conference.
A live demo for Uncharted 3 Drake's Deception was next with Nathan Drake exploring a freighter ship out at sea. There are some really impressive looking visual and lighting effects. There's more of the good old fashioned Tomb Raider gameplay here than there is in the new Tomb Raider game. Nathan is fighting off enemies while the freighter starts to sink and sink into the ocean. All in all its pretty entertaining stuff. June 28 will be time the multiplayer beta. Sony showed the next Uncharted 3 trailer in 3D on the big screen. The full game is out on November 1.
Next up is Resistance 3 and we get to see more shooting and more Chimera in an alternate 1957 where the player travels across the US to New York City
